About the property

3 Bedrooms,3 full bath,4 Queen size Beds, sleeps 8, 4 TVs, wireless internet

The Penthouse is the largest unit in the complex and located on the 7th floor. The Whaler is a low density condo with only 27 units so there is no long wait for the elevator. We have a deep large beach area so you do not feel crowed while on the beach. Our pool is outside with a depth of 3ft. to 8 ft.

We have a great location, only three red lights from the intersection of Highway 59 and Beach Blvd. the center of Gulf Shores. The Whaler is within walking distance to the Gulf State Park Beach and fishing pier which is located to the east along the beach. If you walk west along the beach you can reach the entertainment, restaurants and shopping area.

Excellent Summer Fun

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay ...... ocean front, close to restaurants, and not too many people!!! I love the fact that it only has 27 units. Elevator was fast! Also, Mr. White was very quick to respond and helpful.

very nice great location

  • 5 of 5

Only down side was no internet service which I thought by looking at the ad that WI-FI was included. If I would have had work to do I would not have been a happy camper. Everything else was wonderful. Great Condo; stocked with all anyone needs and wonderful location. Gave it 5 stars instead of 4 for no WI-FI because everything else was perfect.

Nicely decorated

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. The only complaint would be that there is no bathroom down by the pool, so you would have to go all the way upstairs to your condo.

Late summer vacation...well worth the wait

  • 4 of 5

We danced on the beach,chased sand-crabs in the moonlight,played in the pool,slept-in on rainy days,enjoyed several savory meals,and totally relaxed in this roomy and well kept condo.

Thank you for sharing your little piece of Heaven with our family.

Very much enjoyed the Whaler

  • 5 of 5

AC and ice box both worked very well. Spacious for 7 adults. Master bed and bath awesome. Other baths full but a bit small. Easy walking distance to Sea N Suds, Pink Pony, Hooters. No issues with elevator, virtually no wait time for it. By the way-Direct ocean front property.

Car: necessary

The most well-known beach resort, Gulf Shores, boasts miles of sandy beaches, perfect for sunning, swimming, fishing, parasailing, bird watching or beachcombing. Guests at the Whaler Penthouse can also enjoy a myriad of shops and restaurants to please every taste within walking distance. Walk out of the Whaler to the water edge and turn left (East) and enjoy 2.5 miles of white sand beach, plus a State Park fishing pier. Turn right (west) and walk three blocks to the shopping, restaurants and entertainment area. Local golf courses are both scenic and challenging. Top-notch courses include Cotton Creek, Gulf Shores Golf Club and Kiva Dunes are within a short drive.

History buffs will find plenty to enjoy. Visit Antebellum houses such as the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion in Mobile, explore Civil War battlefield or tour historic Fort Morgan, which was completed in 1834 and saw service in four war.
